Fruit cold rooms and vegetable cold storage rooms are essential components of the food industry, aiding in the preservation and maintenance of the quality and freshness of fruits and vegetables. These specialized storage facilities are designed to control temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors to prolong the shelf life of these perishable goods. Preserving fruits and vegetables can be quite an enormous task if you don’t have the right machine or systems to do so. These products are sensitive and delicate. They require certain temperatures to remain fresh and suitable for consumption.

 

Fruit and vegetable cold room solutions are similar to potato and onion cold storage solutions but are specifically designed for storing a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. These cold rooms are designed to maintain specific temperature, humidity, and ventilation levels to extend the shelf life and preserve the quality of fresh produce.

 

Cold rooms for fruits and vegetables can be designed to meet different storage needs, from short-term storage of a few days to long-term storage of several months. The exact temperature and humidity levels required depend on the type of produce being stored, as different fruits and vegetables have different requirements for optimal storage conditions.

 

Some common features of fruit and vegetable cold rooms include refrigeration systems, insulated walls, temperature and humidity controls, and air circulation systems. Some cold rooms also use technology such as ethylene scrubbers and CO2 injection systems to further optimize storage conditions and extend the shelf life of the produce.

 

Fruit and vegetable cold room solutions are essential for preserving the freshness and quality of perishable produce, reducing food waste, and ensuring a steady supply of fresh fruits and vegetables year-round.

 

From various research carried out by our team of engineers, it has been discovered that their no single temperature that is suitable for all fruits and vegetables. In other words, the temperature that is suitable for a particular fruit may not be good for the other. Factors that influence the level of temperature that will good for a particular fruit or vegetable are;

 

● Time of harvest

● Crop maturity

● Origin of the fruit or vegetable

 

Usually, fruits or vegetable harvested during the cool season should be stored with a temperature of between 0 to 2°C. Meanwhile, fruits or vegetable harvested during the warmer season should be stored with a temperature of about 7 to 10°C. Fruits like cucumber and tomatoes can be stored with this temperature. However, other fruits may require a different temperature.

 

We have a team of engineers who have mastered the art of building cold rooms suitable for preserving fruits and vegetables. With over 3 decades in this business, we have designed, built and installed complex fruit and vegetable warehouse facilities across the country. We also deliver special orders to suit our client’s requirement.

 

We design and build cold room storage facilities for fruits and vegetables that have;

 

● Atmosphere control systems

● Product blast freezing tunnels

● Frozen storage

● Fast cooling systems

● Fast cooling with hydro cooler equipment

● High energy efficiency refrigerating systems

● Hygienic evaporator design as required by HACCP

● Engine room design standards in line with the European best practices

● Remote control and monitoring systems with PLC/SCADA

 

We build a cold room system that will help you store your fruits for a whole year without getting damaged.
